“First Week in March,” claimed AllthingsD.

Sources say the company has chosen the first week in March to début the successor to the iPad 2 and will do so at one of its trademark special events. The event will be held in San Francisco, presumably at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Apple’s preferred location for big announcements like these. No word yet on a street date for the iPad 3 (assuming that’s what it’s called), though my guess is retail availability will follow roughly the same schedule as that of the iPad 2: available for purchase a week or so after the event.

As you can see above: Wednesday, March 7 is available at Yerba Buena, which is Apple’s traditional venue for such events. Last year’s announcement was on Wednesday, March 2, and the iPad 2 went on sale about a week later (March 11).

AllThingsD’s sources also backed the prevailing rumors for the iPad 3: HD display, faster GPU/CPU, and similar design to iPad 2. Is anyone excited?
